Ángel Maturino Resendiz: Body Relic

Body relic.

Nails and pieces of envelope placed between two Plexiglas plates.

You should know that Ángel Maturino Reséndiz had the custom of sending nail clippings and hair to his external correspondents. This practice is commonly used in correspondence with serial killers. Some seem to like to transmit a little of themselves outside the walls of the prisons in which they are imprisoned for life, or while awaiting their execution. Ángel Maturino Résendiz having been executed, then cremated, this bodily relic is all that remains of him.

Angel Maturino Reséndiz (August 1, 1959 – June 27, 2006), also known as The Railroad Killer, was a Mexican serial killer suspected in as many as 23 murders across the United States and Mexico during the 1990s. Some also involved sexual assault. He had become known as “The Railroad Killer,” as most of his crimes were committed near railroads, where he had jumped off the trains which he was using to travel around the country.

On June 21, 1999, he briefly became the 457th fugitive listed by the FBI on its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, before he surrendered to the Texas authorities on July 13, 1999. He was convicted of capital murder in Texas, and executed by lethal injection in 2006.”
